The Tigerwood Brazilian Koa colour gradient varies from a light orange, to a deep reddish to brown.
You can recognize it by its brownish stripes reminiscent of those of a tiger.
Scoring at approximately 2160 on the Janka scale, this exotic hardwood is considered to be very dense, hard and strong.
Among many other properties, the Brazilian Koa produces a natural oil that makes it resistant to rot and decay that can be caused by termites.
This wood is good to counter shrinkage, warping and unusual movement of the plank which makes it resist denting.
